Get the balance right!
Who said healthy eating means giving up comforting foods like mashed potatoes?
I like to use family favourites in weekday suppers to entice everyone to eat a balanced meal.
Here is last night's supper comprising baked salmon (protein and healthy fat), mash made with potatoes, parsnips and swede (for added nutrients, yet still just as yummy), served with mushrooms, cauliflower and spinach.
This dinner is heaving with nutrients - we have protein, omega-3 fats, complex carbohydrates, fibre plus a full range of micronutrients.
But the most important component is taste, and as everyone ate it with great gusto last night, I assume that was present too!
